Society of Occupational Medicine
The Society of Occupational Medicine is the UK organisation for all healthcare professionals working in or with an interest in occupational health.
We are concerned with:
- the protection of the health of people in the workplace
- the prevention of occupational injuries and disease
- related environmental issues
The Society stimulates interest and research in occupational medicine and works with the government, the healthcare community, health charities and other bodies to promote a healthier workforce. It also acts as the voice of occupational medicine, responding to consultative documents and media enquiries on issues affecting the speciality.
A national leader in providing continued professional development and education for all doctors and healthcare professionals working in occupational health, it is also a forum for the exchange of ideas, best practice and networking opportunities.
